This is a rock-opera about a Diaspora Armenian. As a victim of historic injustice, James becomes a victim of a car accident. The doctors find his situation hopeless and transplant his brain into another patient of a different nationality. As a result, James’s soul is not accepted into Heaven, for it is incomplete. He returns and participates at his own funeral, thus finding himself in tragicomic situations on the crossroads of Heaven and Earth. John Heral, who has the implanted brain, periodically expresses ‘absent-minded’ thoughts, about some genocide and his being a son of an expatriated family. The two sufferers provoke the wrath of the saints, and thus the promised flood begins for the intolerable sins of the humankind. However the rain in reality turns out to be for rectification.
